Teacher Training Bursaries

Financial support for trainee teachers has never been better. You could get up to £28,000 tax-free while you train, either as a bursary or prestigious scholarship. Your eligibility for financial support, and the amount you can expect to receive, will depend on the subject you choose to teach and your degree classification or highest relevant academic qualification. If your degree isn’t in the subject you wish to teach, you may be eligible for a funded course to increase your subject knowledge before starting your training.

Teacher Training Scholarships 

If you’re passionate about your subject and have the potential to be an inspirational teacher you could apply for a scholarship to support your training. Scholarships are awarded to the most gifted trainees in physics, maths, chemistry, computing, languages or geography in partnership with highly regarded professional subject associations. 

As well as financial support, as a scholar you’ll enjoy a range of prestigious benefits, including:

  • free membership from the professional subject associations awarding the scholarship    
  • access to resources and events to support you through your training
  • support to improve your teacher practice and subject knowledge
  • networking opportunities from a community of like-minded scholars   

To be eligible for a scholarship, you should have at least a 2:1 degree or above and want to teach chemistry, computing, geography, languages, maths or physics. You can still apply if you have a 2:2, but you’ll need to provide evidence of significant relevant experience. Scholarships are awarded in place of a bursary.

If you’re not successful in your application for a scholarship, and secured a place on a qualifying teacher training course in England, you’ll still receive the standard bursary.
